COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De Dulle Teve is brewed in the tradition of a Belgian Triple. Its high density stems from large amounts of pale malt increased with pale candi sugar in the brew kettle. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, bottle-conditioned.

De Dulle Teve keeps two to three years without major changes in taste. Further maturing, up to 10 years, will cause it to darken a little and lose some of its bitterness. The bittering of about 30 IBU is due to Goldings hops in the brew kettle.

I didn’t really enjoy the first half of the bottle. But after pouring the second half into the glass, with all the sedimenty stuff and unfiltered bits, it was rich, complex, and remarkably textured - - the color was layered in the glass. I think next time I’ll buy six of them, let them stand upright for an hour, then pour off the top 2/3 of each bottle into one decanter, pour off the bottom portions into another decanter, then make them both part of a tasting along with other tripels. I know for sure what will win.

Aroma: light fruits, good white wine, white and black peppers, some wild season-like notes. Taste: very light sweeteness, light sourness. Flavour: white grape, mature white wine, spices (black pepper, pimento). Light spicy alcohol bitteness in the aftertaste. Very good.

Dark (32) - FRANCE - JUL 28, 2015
Blonde foncée trouble, belle mousse blanche très abondante. Carbonation importante avec beaucoup de matière en suspension, nez levuré de pêche, abricot et mirabelle, bière ronde très dense en bouche avec des notes (encore) d’abricot et de pêche, léger côté "alcool de mirabelle". Grosse longueur en bouche avec une finale légèrement houblonnée & mielleuse. Délicieuse. Bière atypique, 100% artisanale à boire doucement, une vraie triple belge comme il en existe peu.

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. Blond/light amber to golden, rather clouded/hazy beer, with a nice and sticky foam. The beer is nicely carbonated with a strong aroma with fruity hints, with tropical and dark fruits, citrus, green apples and plums. In the background some hidden alcohol and spices are noticable. The taste is refreshing, crisp and smooth and has a slightly bitter taste, with some well hidden alcohol and a nice bouquet of fruits, really nicely balanced. Then the aftertaste leaves a sour, yeast-like impression, which becomes a hoppy, dry bitter finish. Wow, different from for example Karmeliet or Westmalle but I’m impressed.

Zware tripel. Licht geel van smaak. Dun maar erg veel smaak. Ruikt zoet-bitter.

mmahut (1488) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours in hazy amber body with medium stable creamy head. Aroma has light alcohol upfront with gentle peach fruity maltiness, floral, light banana and yeast. Taste has upfront white wine alcohol with fruity after taste, light woody with mostly banana, peach, some passion fruit. Alcoholy but in a really good balance. Body is medium, little bit oily, warming alcohol in the after taste, medium carbonation. I find alcohol in most of the "fresh" beers disturbing, but I must admit an very nice balance here.

Pours a hazy dark golden. Lots of white head. Aromas of bread, banana, Belgian yeast. Nice hoppiness to it.. A bit of a boozy bite. good.

danielecamo (798) - ITALY - JUL 11, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore dorato con velature arancio, torbida, con molta schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma di cereale, frutta gialla, lievito, crosta di pane, leggero erbaceo. Al palato corpo rotondo, pastoso con polpa di frutta gialla, crosta di pane, orzo, lievito, pepato, amaro erbaceo e leggermente terroso. Molto complessa ed intensa ma quantomai appagante.

kermis (6989) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours almost clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of cloves, yeast, caramel, coriander, sweet malt and fruits. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

leghorn99 (115) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 3, 2015
Colore dorato carico, leggermente velata ed opalescente, schiuma abbondante, cremosa e persistente. Aroma pungente di luppolo e abboccato di malto, complesso. Corpo strutturato, ma non pesante, sorprendentemente duttile per l’alta gradazione alcolica della birra. Comincia pastoso di malto e abboccato di caramello, poi si evolve con note tanniche e di frutta matura astringente (susine?) che ripulisce alla perfezione il palato. Finisce lunga, dolce e piacevolmente complessa.

Mooie kleur, beetje troebel. Een goede tripel met een fruitig aroma en een licht bittere smaak.
